HELP.. PLAYBOOK will NOT turn on !!

When I plug the charger into my PB I Get :


- SOLID Red light for about 20 seconds


- EMPTY red battery with a lightning bolt appears on the screen for about 10 seconds


- SOLID green/yellow light for about 15 seconds


LED turns off.




Any idea what this could be?

Thanks in advance .

As that symbol usually appears when the plug is pulled too soon I think maybe you have a damaged usb port which is very common. Try holding up the plug with a pencil on your counter top.  Or get a charger that fits in the port with the 3 pins to the right usually known as Rapid charger.
